Routes Saturday 10th February
Meet 9 am in main car park of Ashbourne Leisure Centre. Please ensure you check through the routes beforehand. Weather at the moment not looking great – very cold/chance of sleety showers. Therefore please check weather again and judge for yourself if it is suitable for riding in. Just in case the weather doesn’t improve there is an option to do a mountain bike route – a mix of the trails & roads – not technical but maybe a better option if you don’t fancy being on skinny tyres? If you do choose to do the MTB route then liaise with others via the club whatsapp group to say so – that way it’ll encourage others to do likewise hopefully. Remember there is also the option of indoor bikes at ALC (ring 01335 343712 for details). Again do use the club whatsapp group to liaise if you want to meet up with others – also if the weather is looking better on Sunday that could be another choice?
Roll on Spring and better weather…..
